Free Support Groups for Parents of Infants and Pregnant Women

*Due to the COVID-19 situation, our weekly new parent support groups are meeting via Zoom video conferencing. To register for one of the groups, click the registration link in the listing. The link to participate will be shared once your registration is approved. 

Offered by the Center for Early Relationship Support®, all parents with a baby (or babies) under the age of one are invited to attend our FREE new parent support groups. 

Our new parents groups (formerly known as "new moms groups") provide safe and nurturing spaces for mothers and/or fathers with their babies to give and receive support, ask questions, and begin building a parent community. In addition to groups for parents of infants, CERS also offers groups for pregnant women and parents of toddlers aged 1-3. 

Since 1989, our new parents groups and services have been empowering parents to find what works best for them and for their babies. All CERS support groups and services are non-sectarian and open to all parents in the community. Please let us know if you require any accommodations to participate. 

New participants should register at least 24 hours in advance of the group to ensure that their registration is approved. For more information, please contact Diane Gardner at dgardner@jfcsboston.org.
